Shut Up Marty Brennaman

I hadn't heard about Cubs broadcaster Marty Brennaman's rant yesterday during the Reds/Cubs game until I saw this article in the Daily Herald this afternoon. I'm gonna go with this: a bit much there Marty. Chill out bro-han. Don't get so pissy about a couple baseballs on the field. It was funny. The Cubs players (see the quotes from TheRiot yesterday) enjoyed it and they were the ones in danger of getting pelted with one of the fifteen baseballs-not your big donkey Dunner who hit the HR.

I generally think Brennaman is one of the best broadcasters in the game. But what the hell does he have up his ass about the Cubs? Check out what he said, courtesty of the Sun-Times article:

Brennaman called Cubs fans ``far and away the most obnoxious fans in baseball in this league,’’ adding, ``this is what makes you want to see this Chicago Cubs team lose. Throwing 15 or 18 balls on the field, there’s absolutely no excuse for that and that is so typical of Chicago Cub fans. It’s unbelieveable."

Brennaman called the fan behavior ``ridiculous.... You simply root against them. I've said all winter, people talk about this team winning the division, and my comment is they won't win it because at the end of the day, they're still the Chicago Cubs and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up.’’

And be sure to hit up the You Tube video of this too.

Marty, buddy...what does Cubs fans throwing baseballs on to the field have to do with how the Cubs baseball team will perform this year? Seriously. The Cubs are going to screw up winning the division because of the fans? Really?

Enjoy Dusty and Corey Patterson. If I were you, I'd be pissed too.

Marty, enjoy C-Pat, Paul Bako, Kent Mercker, Dave Weathers, Dick Pole, Porky Lopez, Dusty Baker, and Dusty Baker's mother-fuckin toothpick. Seriously. Chill the fuck out. Just because you know that your manager is going to screw up all of your young players and that you will witness the "best Reds team" in the past decade finish a rousing third doesn't mean that you have to spew hatred for the Cubs.
